The highly-anticipated new Everyman Altrinchamopens its doors today following a week of VIP screenings.
Earlier this year we took our team on a tour of the site during construction following the manufacture of a fully-integrated acoustic isolation system designed for each of the four boutique auditoria.
It’s not often that Farrat design, manufacture and supply acoustic isolation for a project so close to home, so it was fantastic to get a first-look at the site.
During last nights official launch we took a look around the completed venue. Everyman Altrincham public spaces have been divided into a variety of lounge and dining areas. The bar combines luxurious finishes set against exposed brick and steel with views through to a semi open kitchen.
The auditoria corridor leads from the public space to the 4 auditoria, each of which have their own distinct character. Signature Everyman sofas are upholstered in a variety of velvet finishes and the back drop of walls and floors are clad in rich colours and textures. There is a menu offering a variety of drinks, hot food and snacks which can be consumed in the bar or received via waiter service directly to cinema seats. Acoustic isolation was critical on this project, due to the proximity and function of each of these separate spaces.
There is an increasing trend for buildings and spaces to have multiple uses, therefore designers must consider disturbing noise and vibration frequencies and their harmonics, to ensure sufficient levels of noise and vibration isolation are achieved.
Using our experience from over 200 cinema projects, Farrat supplied a fully-integrated system to acoustically isolate each auditorium (installed by fit-out contractor G F Holding)
- Lightweight Acoustic Floating Floors
- Perimeter Acoustic Isolation
- Lightweight Partition Isolation (walls)
Specification details for the Farrat systems used in this project are available on NBS Plus.
Everyman Altrincham is a fantastic addition to the Everyman portfolio and certainly a special cinema acoustic isolation project for Farrat.
